Back in March I announced that I was creating an oracle deck, and it's actually near completion!
I wanted to share a quick update and some sneak peaks of the cards here before I get back to it. I only have a few cards left before it's time to get them ready for printing!
Here is a peak at what the back of the cards will look like! It features elements from many of the cards designed into a mandala over a rainbow watercolor background. It's pretty dreamy.
I've chosen to call the deck The Unspoken Truth Oracle.
I really like the rawness of the art on the cards, and I'm using my own handwriting for the keyword at the bottom.. Some of the art is more realistic, some is obviously stylized, cartoonized and one card even features just scribbles and the words "Oh Fuck!"
I am planning on keeping the guidebook rather short and blunt.. I will explain the meaning behinds the cards, but ultimately, they are meant to spark your intuition and insight, but there will be a guidebook included.
I'm sticking to the major archetypes and lessons of the Tarot, but really felt like doing it my way.
I'm disappointed that I never finished the Tree Talker Tarot deck. I don't like when I don't finish major projects.. I got so overwhelmed with needing to have 78 cards and a guidebook and with 3 moves and designing Spirit de la Lune, I simply lost all fire behind the project. (In fact, I may have misplaced the entire project.) I may revive it one day in the future, but for now, I'm more than happy with how the Untamed Truth Oracle is turning out. I didn't use the name Tree Talker Oracle deck, just in case I choose to revive the Tarot deck.
This deck isn't a Tarot deck, though it uses similar archetypes, it's considered an Oracle Deck. The deck will include 40 cards, a guide book, and hopefully a box to carry it in.
I'm currently in the process of finishing up the last few cards. Next step is editing them all in, typing up the guide and finding a printer. Easy.. right?
Luckily because of the raw nature of this deck, the editing process should be pretty quick.
I really was hoping to have pre-orders available by May, but honestly, creating oracle decks is not an easy task!
